I’d Like a Rubber Pencil and a Fanta, Please

Asuncion, as well as many other South American cities, is well known for the peddlers who venture onto the colectivos (buses) as they  make their rounds throughout the city. It’s amazing what you can buy on the bus!

Are you hungry? Thirsty? Need religious inspiration? Or maybe you just have bad breath? Don’t worry, they’ve got you covered with these hot new items!

  • Gum
  • Coca Cola (or other assortment of refreshing beverages)
  • Religious Psalms on little trading cards
  • Chipa (definition here)
  • Chocolate
  • Fruit
  • Rubber Pencils

I am always surprised by the wide variety of offerings I have to choose from each time I step on board!
